Making a Rhinoplasty Surgery Claim

Rhinoplasty, often referred to as a ‘nose job’ is one of the oldest cosmetic surgery procedures designed to reshape the nose. Although Rhinoplasty is usually thought of as a purely cosmetic procedure, it can also be used to cure sinus or breathing problems. We understand that this procedure carries some reasonable risks, however if you have been left scarred, disfigured or needing further corrective surgery then you may be eligible to compensation from the clinic, hospital or surgeon who carried out the procedure. Call 0800 122 3130 to find learn about what your options are and how you can make a No Win No Fee Claim for compensation.

People opt for a Rhinoplasty for all sorts of different reasons. We generally have high expectations of the final results we’d get, especially given the way that many surgeons market themselves. When clients go to these clinics, they sometimes look more like 5 star spas rather than a hospital giving them the false impression that they’d receive excellent care from their cosmetic surgeon or specialist. Often clients will pay extra to stay and recover in the clinics or even in nearby hotels increasing the cost of their care and contributing to the financial loss of their negligent care or botched surgery.

Regrettably things might not always go how you expected they would and should you find yourself in this position then Mercury Legal Online can help. Complete our call back form and one of our cosmetic surgery experts will be able to contact you and support you with a claim for compensation. As many botched procedures will need corrective surgery, this compensation will help with the cost of putting it right.

What happens after the procedure?

After the procedure has taken place, you might have to wear a splint or support for around a week. Dressing packs may be placed in each of the nostrils for a day or two, to stop you from breathing through your nose, and you will have a lot of swelling and bruising around the nose for several weeks. There will be a very small scar on the column between your nostrils, however this will be barely noticeable. If there is any pain and discomfort then painkillers can be taken for this.

How much does Rhinoplasty cost?

Rhinoplasty can cost up to £4,000. Before going through with the surgery, you should have a thorough consultation with your surgeon; rhinoplasty isn’t something you should go through with if you are not totally certain that it is for you. The procedure will have a large impact on your facial appearance and some surgeons advise that this isn’t a procedure best left until later in life, saying it’s easier to get used to such a big change in appearance when you have had the problem for fewer years.

GPs claim medical negligence lawsuits are bringing service to its knees

The increasing costs of medical negligence lawsuits are having direct and devastating consequences on Britain’s General Practitioner service, according to a new survey. The government says that it needs to recruit 5,000 new GPs by 2020 to cope with demand of the increasing workload, but this year has seen the number of GPs falling by 100 per month. Whereas doctors in hospitals have their insurance premiums paid by the hospital or hospital trust for which they work, in the case of GPs the responsibility lies on them to pay their own premiums and some say that they are now paying up to a fifth of their pre-tax income on insurance. According to the BMA (British Medical Association) GP’s pay has reduced by 11 per cent in real terms since 2008. At the same time the annual rise of insurance premiums has averaged 10 per cent, and it continues to rise as the costs of medical negligence cases increase. So is it right to sue the NHS? The vast majority of doctors, nurses and health professionals in the UK are highly qualified, caring people who want to help others in the best way that they can. Many work in high-pressure situations and make the difference between life and death on a daily basis. It is incredibly rare that incidents happen due to malice or general incompetence, but if mistakes are made in someone’s care, and those mistakes go on to leave the patient in a worse state than when they arrived to receive care, then someone has to be responsible. In some cases it might be an issue with machinery... read more

Maternity blunders push NHS negligence payouts to £1billion

Last year the National Health Service paid out more than £1billion in damages for medical negligence. This was a record high amount and was in part fuelled by blunders during childbirth that have soared in recent years. Patient groups said that the figures illustrate the desperate need for improved safety within hospitals. The amount paid out by the NHS for medical and clinical negligence cases has almost doubled since 2010, with a large proportion of the costs going to pay solicitors’ fees. Chief Executive of the charity Action against Medical Accidents; Peter Walsh, said the NHS was spending far too much on litigation because it was failing to improve its own safety record, and spending too much fighting cases that it should not defend. “Most of these costs would be avoided if the NHS investigated incidents better, recognised when they were at fault, and settled claims earlier.” Many of the most expensive claims involved babies who were left brain-damaged at birth for whom the payouts involve the costs of care for the rest of their life. In some cases when things go wrong, a simple apology can resolve the situation. In other more serious cases, doctors and other medical professionals who fail in their duty of care can be disciplined, or even struck off from performing their duties. It is when mistakes are made and serious injuries or life-changing events occur that you might feel the need to take the compensation route, and that is when you need a team of experienced medical negligence solicitors to help you get the compensation you deserve; not only due to the intricate... read more

Mother sues hospital after baby son left disabled

The mother of a child who was left severely disabled after developing a critical illness just hours after his birth is taking legal action against the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust. Reverend Charlotte Cheshire’s son Adam was born at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital in March 2011 but after just eight hours he was fighting for his life. He had developed Group B Strep, one of the most common causes of life-threatening illness in newborn babies in the UK. When he was eight hours old nurses noticed that he breathing was abnormal and that he was making grunting sounds while being unable to feed. At this stage he should have been transferred to the hospital’s neonatal unit for antibiotics to treat the condition, however this did not happen until seven hours later. Experts believe that if the condition had been identified sooner, Adam may not have suffered to the extent that he did. Adam, now aged six, has been left profoundly disabled with visual and hearing impairments as well as autism and delayed development, and his Mum is now taking legal action against the hospital trust. Speaking about the situation she said “ Adam, at six years old has cost the NHS a great deal of money and will continue to do so for the rest of his life. All any parent wants for their child is for them to live a full and happy life, but Adam needs round-the-clock care and will continue to do so for the rests of his life.” Although harmless to the women who carry it, Group B Strep can be fatal for babies,... read more
